We are excited to announce that Membrane Finance has partnered with Januar, a trusted payment institution, to bring superior payment infrastructure to the forefront of the financial industry. Together the Nordic crypto companies are combining their compliance-first approach to bringing new and innovative financial products to market following the coming MiCA regulation.
Membrane Finance is the company behind EUROe, a European euro–backed e-money stablecoin. As a euro–backed stablecoin, each EUROe circulating on the blockchain is backed by at least 1 euro in a bank account. More specifically, as a European stablecoin, those euros are held in European financial institutions.
Membrane Finance is providing its clients with the latest financial technology, and partnering with Januar is a key step towards this goal. By working with Januar, Membrane Finance can focus on delivering innovative financial products and services while Januar handles the complex payment processing infrastructure.
“The ability to transact with regulated and fully backed Euros on public blockchains is, in my opinion, one of the most interesting aspects of EU crypto regulation, and I'm excited that Januar is working with trailblazers like Membrane Finance to bring our traditional money to new technology rails,” says Simon Ousager, co-CEO at Januar.
“We are happy to partner and work closely with the Januar team. Their compliance-first approach and regulation with the notable and trusted Danish FSA means we are confident that a Nordic partnership can show the way forward towards new innovative financial technology and the possibilities it brings,” says Juha Viitala, CEO and Co-founder of Membrane Finance.
Januar is a leading payment institution that has been providing innovative payment solutions to its crypto clients for years. By partnering with Membrane Finance, Januar expands its reach into the financial industry and continues to deliver reliable and secure payment services to a broader range of clients.
This partnership between Membrane Finance and Januar represents a significant milestone in the future of finance, as it combines the expertise of two leaders to deliver cutting-edge financial technology and services to clients.
We look forward to seeing the positive impact this partnership will have on the financial industry and the opportunities it will create for clients of both Membrane Finance and Januar.
